0.85: Create thumbnails for the whole folder

Post by karnak » Fri Jan 19, 2018 5:45 pm

XnView MP Windows
Version 0.89 64bits

Windows 10 Pro x64
Version 1709 Build 16229.125

----

If you set Settings > Thumbnail > Create thumbnails for the whole folder to FALSE
XnView starts high disk activity especially:

C:\$LogFile (NTFS Volume Log) ... Write(B/sec) 1,800,000
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\XnViewMP\XnView.db ... Write(B/sec) 1,700,000

The above data is from Resource Monitor.

This behavior can disrupt other applications work, like rendering applications.

No issue with Create thumbnails for the whole folder set to TRUE.

I just did more tests and found something interesting that is not related to the number of files in the folder.




I have an empty folder with just one TXT file and Create thumbnails for the whole folder set to FALSE.

If I set
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Visible to TRUE
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Show as Thumbnail to FALSE
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Show in preview to FALSE
I have the high disk activity issue.

If I set
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Visible to TRUE
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Show as Thumbnail to TRUE
Settings > File list > Custom Filter > Text > Show in preview to FALSE
I don't have the high disk activity issue.

I sent you a PM with the .ini link, thank you.
I'll also check if I can reproduce the issue with the same .ini on a laptop and report back.

Thank you, I was also able to reproduce on a different computer with my .ini and a new one.
I see that you have already fixed it and it is in testing phase, nice work.
